Gosh Vegan Foods Review

Gosh Vegan Foods Review: May 2017

Some gorgeous Gosh goodies landed on my doorstep just in time to enjoy during National Vegetarian Week. Gosh is all about goodness, they are dairy free, gluten free, soya free, nut free and are suitable for vegans too. Impressively, they are naturally free from the UK’s 14 top listed allergens; cereals containing gluten, eggs, milk, soya, nuts, peanuts, celery, mustard, sesame seeds, lupin, sulphur dioxide, crustaceans, fish & molluscs.

Excited to get stuck in, I hit the kitchen to create some yummy meal plans for the week. The super sensational Sweetcorn & Quinoa Bites jazzed up with a hint of Harissa & Paprika went perfectly with a simple gem lettuce, tomato and onion salad with a light dressing making a fab lunch. The lip-smackingly tasty Chickpea, Courgette & Moroccan spiced bakes topped off with a helping of harissa peppers or the Beetroot, Kale & Quinoa burgers with a hint of mint, stuffed into a burger bun with a handful of polenta chips provided a delicious dinner time chow down.

Relaxed Sunday Sessions to me means lots of scrummy food. The Mushroom, Puy Lentil & Butter Bean burgers screamed out breakfast! Served with spiced beans, fresh roasted vine tomatoes, avocado and toasted bread – boom a brilliant breakfast to start the day. Sunday would not be complete without a classic Sunday dinner, but with a twist…no meat involved! The mouth-watering mixed seed, quinoa, carrot & coriander bakes with a minted pea centre created a centrepiece for a fabulous vegetarian Sunday ‘roast’ dinner, served up with fresh veggies, roast potatoes, a homemade Yorkshire pudding and vegetarian gravy – yummilicious!

Don’t wait to hear the words…’oh GOSH they are all gone’ get yourself down to the supermarket and pick yourself up some Gosh Goodness today.

Thank you to the Gosh team, all the brilliant bloggers and fab followers too 😊

EAT. Manchester Arndale Review

EAT. Manchester Arndale Review: May 2017

With 20 years’ experience and over 100 shops based in the United Kingdom EAT. know a thing or two about fab fresh food. Seasonal changes mean that new fresh innovative menus are launched frequently. Food waste is also managed at EAT. where the brand donates as many of their leftover sandwiches and salads as possible to local charities that work with the homeless. They also work closely with the homeless charity Crisis, so this is a winner for me!

Bill’s Liverpool Breakfast Review: April 2017

For those who don’t know, Bill Collison both driven and inspired by his Dads love for fresh home grown produce, started out in a small space that his dad showed him, which was no bigger than a shed, just off the high street in Lewes in East Sussex.  Rapid Success and growth meant the need to acquire new premises, but tragedy struck in 2000 with the heavy floods wiping Bill’s shop out.  Starting from scratch Bill remained positive and went from almost bust to boom.

Côte Manchester Breakfast Review

Côte Manchester Breakfast Review: April 2017

Bonjour Brilliant Manchester, French phrase book in hand I was ready to experience authentic French cuisine minus the airfare, airport faff and 400-mile journey. The place oozes French rustic charm and character.  The inviting entrance has a French feel with aged signage, topiary trees and vintage seating that gives the outdoors café culture feel.  Anyone could easily mistake themselves for being right in the heart of Paris.
